Wednesday Food of the Day – December 16, 2015

FOOD OF THE WEEK – CINNAMON

This week we continue our theme of holiday spices to work into our meals.  With its piquant taste and familiar aroma, cinnamon is a hallmark scent of the holidays adding warmth to seasonal favorites such as baked goods and beverages — but don’t stop there!

WHY Cinnamon?

Cinnamon is a spice rack essential available whole in stick form or ground and even a dash can elevate a dish. It is a key spice in quick breads, pies, cookies, breakfast staples and savory dishes such as soups and stews or in rubs or marinades for roasting meats.
